For a given project, we want to visually indicate whether a device exists in a system prior to our project versus is installed as part of our project. We typically do this with dashed outlines for pre-existing devices and solid outlines for new devices. When adding an additional view of a device, it is easy to forget to change the symbol to dashed outline, so we can end up with conflicting information on our drawings.
Is there a way to give the device an attribute such that all views of that device have a dashed versus solid outline?
Perhaps the attribute would select a different symbol or a different characteristic of a symbol for new views placed for that device?
We'd prefer to keep the convention of using the outline to indicate pre-existing vs new, but might be open to other ways of representing this if it easily updates all views of the device.
